Will the new server have a beefy right arm?

I does what I says on the box.
It will have none of those things, but it will have a giant spiked phallic object to rape you all with.

I think there are enough donations to give it two.

Now what was that spell again?

Probably a tail also.

Have to agree though, there needs to be one of those beefy arms, coming out of the back of it's drive core. Maybe a S and a more different S.

It needs the epic eyebrows, too, though. No burninating machine is complete without it.

I think the important question is will it be able to squish peasants and burninate anyone who tries to kill it?

The site better have less downtimes if they are taking this much time on bringing it back up, receiving donations, etc.

Would you rather have it been a rush job? I believe that it's far better for it to take a little longer, coupled with being sure what kind of server to get, rather than hurry it up for the sake of having the site up and running. Haste was made in the past and there were problems that came about because of it.

This time it's being done methodically with the users and their donated money in mind. The users of the site put together a sizable sum of donations, we are trying our utmost to not disappoint. This, plus shipping and set up are the reasons it'll take a bit longer.

We're looking at a bare minimum of two weeks, though I'm putting my money on three to four for FA to finally come back up.

I wouldn't, I'd just think you'd be doing something other in that time besides trying to bring the server back up. Like thinking "This happened too many times, I think we have to finally solve what is causing the outages and getting this and that to improve services, etc."

it must have a search system, we've been begging for one

Well, I think that WOULD be a plus. But the matter is if they can find a sutiable search engine for FA internally.

The search function is one of the features that is in the current Alpha-stage version of the Ferrox update (as per a recent post by yak in the "Ferrox Status" thread). Ferrox overall needs a lot of polish before it's ready for even Beta-testing, though.

With the new hardware we're getting, it *might* be feasible to put a search function into the current version of the site; I can't really say for sure though, nor can I speak to the likelihood of it happening even if it is feasible.
